Home Improvement Assistance

Help to to repair, improve, maintain or adapt your home in Leeds

What does it do?

Two levels of assistance are available to home owners depending on their circumstances:

Level 1 assistance is available to all applicants across the city and includes advice on maintenance issues.
Further information on this can be obtained by clicking on the Downloads tab at the foot of this page.

Level 2 assistance is available in the form of a Home Improvement Assistance Loan. This is dependant on how much equity there is in the property. This will only be offered to vulnerable applicants who are on low incomes or are in receipt of certain benefits and fall within the necessary criteria.
An electronic version of the Home Improvement Assistance Loan application form can be downloaded from this page.
